Muscat tenders water supply project

28 August 2012

Contractors have until 8 October to submit bids for Muscat water project

Oman’s Public Authority for Electricity and Water (PAEW) has invited contractors to submit bids for the contract to build a water supply scheme for Yeti, Al-Hesn and Bander Jissah in the sultanate.

Contractors have until 8 October to submit bids for the tender.

In June, PAEW awarded the local Galfar Engineering & Contracting a RO24m ($62.2m) contract to build a water distribution network in the wilayat of Nizwa in Al-Dakhiliya governorate.

Demand for water in the sultanate has increased at a faster rate than anticipated over the past year prompting the PAEW to revise the capacity building plans for water projects.

On 24 July, Oman Power and Water Procurement Company (OPWP) received bids for the project to build an Independent Water Project (IWP) at Al-Ghubrah.

The desalination project will have a capacity of 42 million gallons a day (g/d) of water. The reverse-osmosis plant will help the sultanate meet growing water demand in the Muscat region.
